An insight into the money West Ham may need to fork over if they wish to sign Adam Armstrong has been provided this weekend.
West Ham eyeing a striker
West Ham sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax during the winter window.
This has, of course, reduced the Hammers’ options at centre-forward.
In turn, David Moyes and co. appeared to be in the market for some fresh legs up top throughout the January window.
In the end, though, West Ham didn’t bring in a new striker, leaving them rather short up top until at least the summer.
Following transfer deadline day, Moyes confirmed that his side had indeed been on the lookout for a new centre-forward, but explained:
“We were looking and we had money to spend. But we are trying not to go down the same path as before. I am not going to sign players who have come in to appease people.”
Blackburn want £25m for Armstrong
Despite the window now being closed, West Ham continued to be linked with strikers.
One of these has been Blackburn hitman, Adam Armstrong.
Armstrong has scored 19 and assisted three in just 31 Championship outings for the Rovers this term.
And now, Tony Mowbray’s side appear to have set their asking price for their star man.
According to a report from the Sun over the weekend, Blackburn want £25m for the forward, a fee which is said to have shocked West Ham and other admirers.
Said price may also have something to do with the fact that Newcastle are due 40 per cent of whatever Blackburn get for Armstrong:
